Summer’s Winding Down!

With summer quickly running it’s course this year, and turning the front page of Viewthroughmylens.net working as a blog while I tested it in June, it’ll definitely be something I’m keeping as the entry page after the mobile of photos. 

As a reminder, Fond Du Lac Tribal & Community College graduation photos are still available for print order on my Smugmug print ordering page, at http://viewthroughmylens.smugmug.com/People/FDLTCC-Graduation-Photos/23036513_qpLhqv.  A portion of photo sales profits will be given to FDLTCC’s SSS/Trio program to help future students.

This week I have huge amount of Lake Park Little League (Duluth)’s Art Von baseball tournament photos to go through, as well as photos from Cloquet Car Daze burnouts and flame throwing show.  Some photos from the 2011 Cloquet Car Daze show are available for viewing at http://www.viewthroughmylens.net/Galleries/CloquetCarDaze/CloquetCarDaze.html
